Beaver chathead.png

The beaver is a skilling pet that can be obtained while training Woodcutting. A strange sound is heard when you obtain the beaver while Woodcutting. The chances of getting it are dependent on the player's Woodcutting level, and the time it takes to gather a resource. Chopping ent trunks and bruma roots will not give players a chance to receive this pet.

When a player receives the pet, it will automatically try to appear as their follower. At the same time, a red message in the chatbox will state You have a funny feeling like you're being followed.

When woodcutting, the pet is prioritised over the resource gathered. For example, if there is one last inventory space while woodcutting, and the player already has a pet following them, the pet will appear in the inventory instead, while the log cut will drop to the ground. When this occurs, the message in the chatbox will instead state You feel something weird sneaking into your backpack.

On death, if a player loses their pet (as a follower or in your inventory) it will wander around for 30 seconds before disappearing completely.

Players can pay a one-time fee of 500,000 coins to Probita in East Ardougne to have this pet insured. If the pet is lost while insured, it can be reclaimed for 1,000,000 coins.

Drop rates

Shown below are the base chances of receiving a beaver[1].

A player's actual chances of receiving it is 1 in B - (Lvl * 25), where B is the base chance and Lvl is the player's Woodcutting level.

The fastest method on average to receive the beaver is by cutting teak trees, as their ratio of cutting speed to pet chance is by far the highest. This can be made even faster through 2-tick or 3-tick woodcutting.
